PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help students navigate the scientific method with these flip books. These flexible tools can be used for any scientific investigation. I always start the year by having students design a silly experiment with these (and mealworms - see example included in the preview) as a way to review the scientific method and engage/excite students.

The flip book takes students step-by-step through the scientific method:
1) Ask a (testable) question
2) Make a hypothesis
3) Identify variables*
4) Identify materials needed
5) Write a procedure
6) Collect Data
7) Analyze Data (with a graph)*
8) Form a conclusion

*There are 8 different versions of this flip book (each as its own PDF document). Some versions omit the variable and graph tabs as teachers may decide that students are not ready for them, it doesn't apply for the situation, or there isn't enough time. The versions are
•Version 1 - Includes variables and graph tabs (8 pages, 4 pieces of paper)
•Version 2 - includes graph tab (no variables) (8 pages, 4 pieces of paper)
•Version 3 - includes variables tab (no graph) (8 pages, 4 pieces of paper)
•Version 4 - does not include graph/variables tab (6 pages, 3 pieces of paper)

For each one of the four there is an (A) and a (B). The (A) is more scaffolded with directions, a sentence frame for the hypothesis, definitions of variables, and prompts for students to label the graph. The (B) is more open ended. It does not have directions, sentence frames, variables, or prompts. The way it is designed, you could use some sheets of (A) and some of (B) if you want to slowly release responsibility to students throughout the year.

Also included are directions for how to assemble and an example of how to use them.
